Sholing 2-1 Wellington AFC
Boatmen came from behind and won it deep into added time to go into the hat for the FA Vase 3rd Round. A lacklustre first half from Sholing saw the visitors take the lead on 37 mins, heading in from a corner. Much better tempo and pressure in the 2nd half saw us camp for long periods in the Wellington half, with their keeper saving well twice. On 69 mins, we drew level when OWEN ROYL'S cross from the right wing curled over the keeper and in. The linesman raised his flag, but after an agonising wait, the Ref gave the goal. Byron headed against the bar as we searched for the winner and it finally came in the 94th minute as Barry Mason (making his 550th appearance) put in a freekick that was met by BYRON MASON to nod down inside the near post to win it - Match Report, Photos & Video
Bashley 1-1 Sholing
A frustrating game, that overall, probably deserved to finish even, but a penalty decision in favour of the home side overshadowed the match. Dan Mason put Sholing in front on 27 minutes as he connected first time to a Barry Mason cross with a superb scissorkick. Both sides had chances after that, but just after the restart, Kabba Jack went to ground in the box and despite no one appealing, the Ref gave a penalty, which was scored - Match Report
Sholing U18's 2-0 Clevedon Town U18's
The young boatmen made history by reaching the second round of the FA Youth Cup for the first time with an extra-time win over Clevedon in front of 227 spectators. Jean-Luc Ramdin broke the deadlock in the 113 minute when he smashed a vicious volley from 15 yards into the roof of the net. Jean-Luc made sure in the 119 minute when under pressure, the keeper cleared to him 25 yards out and he fired it back first time into the far corner - Match Report & Photos
Sholing 3-0 Hamworthy United
There was nothing scary about the Boatmen's performance as we picked up a deserved win thanks to three second half goals. Visiting keeper kept Sholing at bay in the first half, but could do nothing on 54 mins as Barry Mason's cross found Marv Mclean ghosting in to control & finish. On the hour mark, Lee Wort chased a ball over the top and got to it ahead of defender & keeper to nod over them & into the empty net. On 90 mins, substitute Rory Wood, ran clean through and scored - Match Report
